1. Submit your completed and signed application for Licensure by Endorsement via the Nevada Nurse Portal
2. Pay the associated fees
3. Submit a copy of evidence of graduation from your nursing education program
4. Official verification from your original state of licensure by examination.
- If the state participates in Nursys, you must complete the Nursys verification process, pay their fee and designate Nevada as the receipt of the verification.
- If the state does not participate in Nursys, you must contact their state Board directly for further instructions. You will need to send them the Verification of License form to complete and submit to the Nevada State Board of Nursing on your behalf.
You now qualify for a temporary license and will need to complete your Complete Background Check before your temporary license expires in order to receive a permanent license.
6. Submit a completed fingerprint card
- If you have your fingerprints submitted through livescan they must be captured in Nevada.
- If you have your fingerprints done out of state, they must be done by a law enforcement agency or by a private fingerprinting service. You may use any agency's fingerprint card as long as it is completed on the standard FD-258 card.
